Fluffy Stuff

After seeing Lisa Murphy do THIS I had to try it.  All you need is a bottle of shaving cream and a box of corn starch.  This was enough for two tubs of this wonderful, fluffy stuff!  We poured about half the box of corn starch in each tub and then just squirted the shaving cream into them.  We used the entire bottle between the two tubs.  The incredible thing about this is that after a bit, it's moldable!  The kids LOVED it.  Now to replenish my shaving cream supply.  Next time we will try adding some color too.  So fun and a great fine motor and sensory experience!

Does it dry out and harden? Can it be used for students to make 3D objects?

I've never heard of this before, can't wait to try!

Jennifer, I would say the consistancy is more like moon sand. It didn't dry out for us, but the next day it was still stiff enough to mold with.

We just tried this too! Isn't it fantastic! We called it gunk. I found it to be quite gunky, but marvelous. Great photos!

Can it keep overnight in open? or did you put into container (air-tight)? Can use many times? I never let kids play with shaving cream as it is expensive here. would liketo try esp if can be used several times...

thanks

Ajar, yes, just store in an airtight container. We kept it for about a week but it does get stiffer the longer it sits. I would just suggest the kids wash their hand BRFORE they play with it, as it will stay cleaner that way. Enjoy!

This was so much fun! My 27 month-olds scooped it into muffin tins, squished it in between their fingers, hid some foam letters in it, we made mini meatballs, and of course we made a HUGE mess all over the outdoor carpet in the lanai. We tried adding liquid water color paint to the mixture, but it didn't change the color much. The next time, we'll put some of our toy cars in it and have them drive through the snow. Thank you again!

Do you thing this would be good recipe for making a "magic model" kind a clay? Adding some white glue to it, I mean. Or do you have any other recipe for making magic model? I need a clay that dries squishy. Tks!!!
